UD 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil Stash Swatches

This is one of Urban Decay's limited edition sets for the holidays this year. I love Christmas sets and this one is no exception! It's the 24/7 Glide-On Pencil Stash and it retails for $34 US/$41 CAN. These are .088 oz as stated on the pencils (though the outer packaging and Sephora both state it as .88 oz). While this set is LE for the holiday season, each pencil except for Juju is a permanent shade and can be bought separately.

^ You get five pencils in the shades: Delinquent, Rehab, Juju, Sin, and Clash. They were quite hard to get out of the case the first time. You may need to stick something into one of the ends of the packaging and pry them up like I did.

^ They are very similar to NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils, but I find that they do not crease as easily. If you like the NYX ones, you'll love these.

Rehab and Juju are both similar to MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow, which I personally think is fabulous. I paired Rehab with Satin Taupe the other day and they look great layered. Sin is one of my favorite Urban Decay colors as it is a beautiful champagne color that works on everyone. Wearing it with winged liner is an easy elegant look and paired with a red lip, it would be great for Christmas.

I like the color combination, though Clash kind of throws me off. The other colors mesh well together and then they threw in a bright blue. I think I would have preferred a gray or green color that would play well with the neutrals. And I can't really think of a time that I'll really use Clash. The other colors will definitely be used, though!

If you like cream eyeshadows or using a color base, give these a try. I was really impressed with the color payoff, the lack of creasing, and the ease of blending other eyeshadows on top of them. It's a great deal to buy them in a set like this, as well. You're getting around $85 worth of product by buying this set. They retail separately at $20 US/$24 CAN for .10 oz of product.

Have a great weekend!

Yay, I'm glad to hear that you liked these! I literally just ordered them yesterday, haha. I can't wait to get them! The creasing really annoys me with NYX pencils so I bet I'll love these.

Ahhh! I've heard about these BUT seeing your post & the swatches makes me want them. :)

Thank you for posting these!

@Anna- Yay! I wore mine for about six hours and noticed no creasing at all. I did pair it on top of UDPP, though. I feel naked without a primer now! Haha! The shades of taupe in this set are drool-worthy.

@Antonia- I know the price is a little high, but you get a great deal. I'm finding them to be worth it, because they are much better than the NYX ones. If you get them, I don't think you'll regret it. The three neutral colors are perfect for everyday wear. :)
